. we have lots of things in common with the u.s., fast, generous territory, homogeneous people, hardworking people. we don't have racial problems that affect some african countries or the wars that are waged in europe nor the religious conflict of europe itself. and therefore latin america is called to compromise or rather commitment with its own fate. and therefore we are looking forward to president obama's words. we are all left-handed. we have many coincidences. we studied in harvard, both of us. we are sportsmen. president obama continues to be a basketball player. i was in my time as well. i think the first lady of the u.s. is very good-looking, and president obama has said the same thing about the first lady of chile. there are plenty of 0 coincidences. but the most important one is the one we'll find this afternoon, and modestly if i could suggest to president obama, we hope to have a partnership that is two -- one where we have all responsibilities and not existentialism because it's never been enough. rather a partnership of collaboration between latin america and the
of hitting him. it is, according to the allied forces, according to the u.s. president barack obama an others, it is is to keep the people of libya safe. they're there for the safety of the people. does this change anything now that moammar gadhafi's compound has been stuck? >> i don't think so. i think the commanding control was always on the list, the intent to hit it. not him directly. i would suspect when we went into this we have a no target, no shoot list, restricted fire zone which designates mosques, buildings such as hospitals and his headquarters was on that no target list. but remember last night and early tonight you saw air defense weapons from that compound shooting in the air. you've got two possible scenarios. you've got a scenario where a pilot could have seen that anti-aircraft weapon, a zsu-23-4, could have been at the top of the building, could have been shooting. don't know the fact s yet, but commend robinson and his crew for going there. the other moment is, the moment that cnn crew walked on the scene, all of our targeteers are watching this, everybody is using cnn int

likely is it will you jump out of your parent's income group? the u.s. did surprisingly poorly coming in behind denmark, norway, sweden, germany, france, canada. two other such studies confirmed this reality. now, i know what my perception is about america. anyone can make it here, and there are lots of high-profile examples of that. but those are anecdotes. the facts say that for the average joe in recent years social mobility has slowed and other countries have moved ahead. similarly among rich countries over the last 25 years our growth rate per person has not been the strongest. now there are clearly places where we are still number one and the number of guns we own far exceeds any other country. we account for 50% of the world's annual production of weapons. we are number one in terms of our total debt to other countries, but there are really many positive places where we are still number one. that's what i began by listing. but my point is the picture today is a lot more mixed than boastful rhetoric about america is number one suggests. the question i have really is what would i
tap all of the potential. we have lots of things in common with the u.s., vast generous territory, hard-working people. we do not have racial problems that affect african countries or the wars that were waged in europe or the religious conflict of europe itself and, therefore, latin america, is called to compromise or, rather, commit with its own fate. and, therefore, we are looking forward to president obama's words. we are all left-handed. we have many coincidences. we studied at harvard. we are sports american. i continues to a basketball player and i watts, as well. and the first lady of the united states is very good looking, and president obama has said the same about the first lady of chile. there are plenty of coincidences but the most important is what we will find this afternoon. and i could suggest president obama, we hope to have partnership that is ... one where we all the responsibility ies and we have never had to face major problems but a partnership of collaboration. between latin america and the united states, sharing values, principles and a common vision. and t

marine in the theater has talked about the main problems, that only with u.s. direct involvement and substantial financial infusions of money -- the budget for a spans greater than the entire afghan gdp. when we leave, how will the afghan government pay for it? from his perspective, on the ground, almost entirely by u.s. supervision and u.s. financing. >> first of all, that does not give adequate credit to our afghan partners. marja, which was liberated less than a year ago, which took 4200 u.s. marines when we started, which is down now to 1600, they have been able to hold the district community council election. this is right after their great debate. it was neat stuff. this was them running this. there are 10 schools open now in marja. there were zero under the taliban. these are afghans teaching in the schools, not us. we may have to rebuild the schools, working to repair irrigation systems, the market's the use to sell exclusively illegal narcotics and weapons and explosives -- there are now about 15 markets that sell household goods, food, and clothing. these are the afghan

to be qaddafi's presidential compound. still, both the brits and the u.s. military leaders say qaddafi is not the target of this mission. >> this is not about going -- going after qaddafi himself or attacking him at this particular point in time. it's about achieving these narrow and relatively limited objectives so that he stops killing his people and so humanitarian support can be provided. >> still, certainly it is sys m symbolic to the libyan leader can hit his home. our defense secretary says the u.s. role in this effort should begin to diminish. >> we expect that in a matter of days to be able to turn over the primary responsibility to others. we will continue to support the coalition. we will be a member of the coalition. we will have a military role in the coalition. but we will not have the pre-eminent role. >> admiral mullin says that support role will include intelligence support, jamming capabilities and assistance with the overall mission and the no-fly zone. back to you guys in new york. >> thanks for setting the table. john kerry, seniator sessions, admiral mullin, e

that if something like this happens in the u.s. that you'll have the ability, and i understand apparently from some of the testimony, what i've read is apparently you guys are in charge. in terms of implementing, you're the go-to people now? is that accurate in terms of dictating who does what and who's in charge? an ongoing plan that's developing? >> in response to nuclear power plant, the inside of the facility is regulated by nuclear regulatory commission. outside of the plant is actually the local and state responders with fema supporting them. if you have a scenario that resulted in release, the most important thing to occur is successfully evacuate people away from that plant. those the type of things that the exercise plans work on. these are the things that local and state officials train against, and our role of the federal government, to support them we additional resources required in the event of an evacuations had to take place. those are the thing, and i think from a standpoint of your question, if you would like senators to have our staff, reach out with the state and give your staff

in on our own. we should be going in under the u.n., not the u.s. flag. we shouldn't attack a country this didn't attack us first and shouldn't have boots on the ground. from that mouth, this is sort of the perfect way to go. we go in not under the u.s. flag but under the u.n. flag. we go in on the humanitarian mission, short-term limited thing, no boots on the ground. i think that going in, he did it the right way. my big question is how long are we going to be there? what really is our mission? i think the -- it is really, really fuzzy whether it is just to protect the rebels or to get gadhafi out. we are saying both things. how much is it going to cost? it depends on how soon we get out. if we could turn this over to the french government or to somebody else, as they say they are going to, in a couple of days, get out of there, then i think this is going to be a successful operation. if it drags on and gadhafi stays in power, it is another loser. >> pat buchanan, what are the odds if we are being realistic we will be out as the president had said in a mere matter of days, turning i
